New liveaboard 5-day film and edit course

| No TrackBacks
Jeff Goodman, director and award-winning cameraman, is to lead a new series of courses aimed at improving the art of good underwater video production while at the same time realising the incredible wealth and diversity of our planet's marine life.

Film courses
These new courses are being pioneered by Emperor Divers on Gold Fleet luxury liveaboards in May and November 2009. A maximum of 10 guests will be able to learn from one of the best underwater cameramen in the industry and will need their own video camera and housing for filming and a laptop with associated equipment for editing.

"This is ideal for divers who are competent in the water and have good background knowledge of how their camera works. We'll be looking at how to get the best out of their camera systems and exploring the techniques of observing and capturing wildlife behaviour with an end goal of producing a professional looking two-minute DVD," explains Jeff.
Video filming is only half of the story. Great footage can easily be ruined by bad editing. This course is a combination of knowing your camera, researching your subject, choosing a location, creating a story and taking good video while at the same time being aware of how everything will come together in the edit.

Jeff has over 30 years' experience in wildlife and underwater filming. Credits include the BBC, Channel 4, National Geographic, Discovery, Animal Planet and many others. He has twice been nominated for BAFTA Award Cameraman and won Montana Festival Best Series Director/Cameraman.

2009 dates: (10 students maximum. Prices for course only.)
